Climate Change: Is it Too Late?

There seems to be an increasing consensus among climate scientist that even if we were to cease all production of man made greenhouse gases it would take as much as a hundred thousand years to return to a more normal state…We have triggered nature to quickly release its own huge stores of greenhouse gases from the oceans, ice, and tundras which have been accumulating and lying dormant for millions of years. We can still make a difference if we act soon. Our influence on Climate Change is still significant. Continue reading

2015 UN Paris Climate Summit – Are We Committed?

The first UN Climate Change Summit (COP21) in 20 years convened in Paris just days after the recent Terrorist attacks there. Its goal is to draft legally binding and universal agreements on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 3.6°C… Our nation has officially been a strong advocate for reducing greenhouse gases yet 57% of Republican Congress Members deny anthropomorphic (man caused) Climate Change arguing there is nothing we can do to stem it in spite of universal scientific consensus to the contrary.

Global Warming No Longer a Science Issue

In the last decade the consensus of scientific peer-reviewed papers on anthropogenic (man caused) Global Warming has rapidly gained favor. A recent report indicates 97.2% of recent scientific peer-reviewed papers favor anthropogenic Global Warming. Major behavioral and economic changes to correct for Global Warming must happen. Greenhouse gases directly or indirectly produced engage every aspect of life. This change will have huge economic, political, and moral ripple effects that will change our lives more than any other issue facing us today. The reason it is so controversial is its urgency and potential threat to our existence. It requires immediate and disruptive changes to our ways of life. Continue reading

New Technology May Overshadow Global Warming

Fracking is a relatively new technology that threatens efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. This new technology can produce an abundant source of domestic fossil fuels that could provide us with greenhouse producing energy for many decades to come, increasing global warming and the threat of increasing super-storms and devastation. This article describes the Fracking process and many of its other dangers. Continue reading

Global Warming Getting a Power Boost from Methane Gas

There exist vast stores of a gas that is trapped under the Arctic ice sheets and permafrost which is more than 20 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide that is in danger of being liberated if our Arctic ice fields melt from the effects of global warming that could give an extremely potent boost to global warming. Continue reading
